I visited Antigua Restaurant with a friend. She had chicken mole and I had terrific chicken dish with a white sauce, rice and salad. Saying white sauce is a real disservice. It is delicate and creamy. There is nothing plain about it. The server was able to have a drink made for my friend like one she had in Mexico.... More

You must try their version of coconut shrimp, Encocao de Camarones, it is unbelievable! It is not the normal breaded version. It is in a coconut sauce served with cilantro rice and plantains, I just can't say enough about it! We have been coming here for a while and I have enjoyed their other food as well, especially the tequila... More

I went here for lunch with a co-worker. Thankfully I had a buy one get one free. I ordered Cochinita Pibil which is basically a pulled pork with red onions. He ordered pupusas which where very thin. He was lead to believe it was an entree, looked like an appetizer. Would never get either again. Small portions. Service: Arrived at... More

We bought a Groupon for Antigua to give it a try. We went on a Saturday night. It had a nice look to it on the outside with a patio. Upon entering, we noticed it was loud. We ordered guacamole with bacon. It was o.k.. Our entrees were a bit pricey, I thought, and the food was just o.k.. There... More

The atmosphere is very nice and clean but the customer service could use a little work, staff is somewhat judgemental. The food is waaaay to expensive for very little portions and just not worth it. To be honest, it isn't even a mexican restaurant, if you are looking for taco's, enchiladas, burritos and refried beans, this is not the spot... More

Actual visit 6/5/13. I had the Ropa Vieja and Cream de elote soup. Their ropa was a tiny bit different than what I was used to and I really didn't care for what looked like a tomato based broth that it was sitting in. I also didn't care for the green rice or the maduros that were also soaked in... More

The atmosphere was warm and friendly, the hostess and waitress were courteous and very attentive. Let me get something straight, I am a picky eater, but everything we had was excellent! Complementary bread was served; sliced, crunchy, on the outside and soft in the inside, with a garlic dipping sauce. We started with the guacamole, it was fresh and the... More

Pleasant service, nice atmosphere, and very good food from the appetizer to the mole chicken, or my wifes salmon with a berry sauce. A pleasant way to begin an evening.

Well the tapas were great but my main dish the ropa vieja was absolutely disgusting. The meat was so sour I took 2 bites and couldnt eat anymore . I decided to take it home to see if one of the kids wanted it but they smelled it and refused to even try. Then my dog licked it and walked... More

We finally made it to Antigua and were not disappointed. The service was excellent. The food was delicious: the cilantro aioli, salad and plantains all had a light fresh taste. My chicken dish was very flavorful. My husbands beef dish was good but a little too salty for our taste. Overall a very good experience, we will be back.
